This is more of a question to Jez our most awesome and supreme being of a moderator (!) but thought I’d put it as a post to see what anyone else thought.
In essence I find the font sizes (presumably set in the CSS file) on the forum too tiny!
On my other 17″ laptop it’s all fine and dandy, but then again it is a large screened laptop.
On the NC10 though, it seems a bit too tiny. Is there a possibility it could be increased by 0.5pt, 1pt or something just to make it that little bit bigger? Hopefully that wouldn’t alter or compromise the site’s layout either 🙂
Jez: If it does involve a major change then obviously don’t bother!
BTW. Cool poll feature – only using it here just to see what it’s like lol.November 20, 2008 at 7:17 pm #169915
That’s funny, I was thinking the very same thing! And I have to agree with you. Given that this is a site for a netbook with a smaller screen I think I will have to act on it too!
Yep it is all handled via a CSS script so shouldn’t be too hard. I’ll need to experiment and see what breaks etc. The chap who made the theme might be able to help too! Watch this space.
PS Have you tried the browser zoom? It actually looks good in chrome zoomed in on my NC10. Need to check the widths and stuff on all the pages. But in the mean time that might help? A good excuse to test multitouch. Pinch and zoom lol!November 20, 2008 at 7:59 pm #169922
Yeah I have tried the zoom on IE 7 and it works ok but is a bit seems to render the text in weird ways, like putting a space after a “w” for example. Things start looking “w eird”!
Perhaps it’s better on Mozilla or Chrome?
I’d hope that the font sizes wouldn’t affect the structure. If its a CSS layout as well then it should be fine since it’s all parameterised if that’s a word lol.
I like the font size on the aspireoneuser site forums, that’s a good compromise I’d say about size 10-11 pt perhaps – not too sure?!
EDIT: Just tried the zoom again, the W’s are ok now lol. It might have been on a different site I tried the zoom on before, yours renders fine 🙂November 21, 2008 at 3:59 pm #169924donkaMember
I think it is on the lower limit of what I consider fine for comfortable reading. Smaller and I would not be happy though.November 21, 2008 at 4:35 pm #169916
The Zoom on Chrome was much better than on IE – I tried both!
I haven’t had a go at changing yet, its on the list of things to do Im working through lol!November 22, 2008 at 2:41 pm #169917
I have increased the font size by 1. What do you think? Too big, still too small?November 22, 2008 at 3:11 pm #169925TheRingMember
whats that youve written jez? i think its fine lolNovember 22, 2008 at 3:53 pm #169926BeckyMember
Ah yes, that definitely looks better! 🙂November 22, 2008 at 4:30 pm #169918
cool, it was easy to change – all content text is in one style class.November 22, 2008 at 6:41 pm #169923
Thanks Jez, definitely better in my op.November 23, 2008 at 10:35 am #169919
nice oneNovember 26, 2008 at 3:42 pm #169927BlackWhizzMember
Its nice, but i think the textarea in quick reply needs a little bigger font size and a larger field. Thats just a little too small.November 26, 2008 at 4:57 pm #169920
I know that the new version of the e107 CMS will have a redesigned quick reply box with some whizzy AJAX functionality.
I’ll have a look though – I think it is a fair point! And, again, if it is easy then I’ll do it!December 1, 2008 at 3:55 pm #169928BlackWhizzMember
Well, im a web developer and i can help you if you like?December 1, 2008 at 4:29 pm #169921
Thanks for the offer – a few web devs around. The e107 CMS is an OS project with a whole team of people working on it. So each time they release I get to use a load of new stuff 🙂
I think I have the forum pretty much they way I want it. Too much functionality will kill my host server anyway! Time to get some content together 🙂
Rest assured I will be calling on the NC10 owners web dev team if I need it – thanks 🙂
